My field of expertise is theoretical Plasma Physics, with emphasis on Inertial Confinement Fusion (Fast Ignition...) and Astrophysics (GRB's, Cosmic Rays...). Regarding Fusion, I've worked on stopping power theory, which tells you how fast particles loose their energy when entering a plasma. I also wrote significantly on beam plasma instabilities in the relativistic regime. Besides their theoretical interest, such instabilities are relevant for the Fast Ignition Scenario in Fusion and for the physics of collisionless shocks in plasmas. I currenty work on these later objects, partly motivated by the role they may play in understanding Gamma Rays Bursts and High Energy Cosmic Rays.
